    [​IMG] I bought this game hen and was wondering if you guys can help me figure out exactly what she is. She's so pretty and pretty laid back,maybe a little jumpy.

    There are LOT of different games, and it is sometimes hard to tell unless you know the history.

    She looks like a mix to me, probably some OEGB in her, but the comb looks like it could be a pea comb??? Which means something else as well.

    She looks like an American Game mix to me.

    She's not Wheaten.

    Most likely Black Breasted Red or one of the other "Red" colorations that can be seen on gamefowl.

    She looks pure gamefowl, but would like to see a better picture of her and her comb.

    If she has a Pea Comb it simply means that she carries come oriental blood in her (not uncommon). The Sheldon roundheads I had were a small pea combed American gamefowl.

    If she has a Rose Comb then she could have come Spanish blood in her.

    Having a Pea Comb means nothing, it simply means that she most likely carries oriental in her make up. Some American gamefowl types are bred to have a Pea Comb, the Sheldon Roundhead being just one...
